This was originally a school assignment that was meant to be a college essay. I decided to scrap it and turn it into a different piece. It is inspired by the mountains in Colombia.
Maria Ruiz is a Colombian high school student living in New York who has a passion for medicine and loves music and writing. Most of her writing comes straight from her phone’s notes and encapsulates her random thoughts and opinions throughout the day or her overwhelming emotions during nerve-racking events. Although she has never considered it as her personal career, she enjoys writing in her free time or when she needs an escape. Not to mention, she is an extreme romantic.
Nothing but a recollection of my life experiences, contemplations and overthinking. For the past year, I have done a lot of reflection on past, and planning for the future.
